In the old days we ate dirt, no problem. But things have changed.
Recent studies have shown the reason house dust makes us fat.
This does not surprise me based on my 23 years of studying the complex ways things in our environment affect our health. Not only is most dust full of toxic chemicals nowadays, but our bodies are less efficient at ridding itself from the onslaught of so many toxins.
US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that children consume 50 milligrams of house dust each day, according to ScienceDaily.
